Stroll along Coloane and listen to the artisan’s dream
The Coloane Game is an on-site walking tour to visit Coloane. Performers will lead you through every nook and cranny to experience the then prosperity of the west side of Coloane through guided tour, theatre, dance and exhibition. By stopping at Pátio do Velho and passing through Rua dos Negociantes to arrive at Lai Chi Vun, you can witness the wax and wane of the shipbuilding industry and feel residents’ spirit of mutual help. The Coloane Game tells the stories of Coloane, and at the same time reminds you the importance of preservation and development of traditional culture.
Since 2016, Dream Theater Association has produced a variety of performances themed on the Macao shipbuilding industry, such as Sunset at the Shipyards at the 29th Macao Arts Festival. Through fieldwork research and interviews, the group explores Macao’s stories and creates productions imbued with Macao’s historical and cultural characteristics.
